I just received a comment on an answer that started out with italicized text.
It will only replace anything up to the last valid key/value pair. Anything else beyond will be left as is. This explains the behavior...
In the global inbox, the word
italic is shown in the message. I imagine it will do something similar to
code comments. I'm also seeing the same behavior in the Android app so it's not specific to the top-bar global inbox but apparently with how the notification text is generated.
I'm not sure if this applies only to comments or answers, bounties or other non-system inbox notifications with user text.
Not really a problem for me but thought it was worth a mention. Bug?
